Disappointment for a huge fan!
Your blood may run cold, but you now find yourself pinioned to the story.
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
This film is the continuation of a whole series of films about organized crime.
A young man from a poor family begins to serve the local mafia. Starting with the execution of small orders, punishing the enemies of mafia, he becomes the organizer of large schemes for selling alcohol and cigarettes. He becomes one of the leaders of local mafia group.In addition to the general romanticism inherent in all the feature films about the mafia, this project reveals the existing problems within the mafia society. The authors concentrate viewer's attention on the problem of loyalty and betrayal, price of friendship, role of women and goals of creating organized criminal groups. In addition, the film highlights the inevitability of tough struggles, clashes and reckoning for crimes. A deeper motive is the experience of the main characters. Despite the deep storyline, the film is easily perceived, has unobtrusive everyday colors and a cheerful composition.Summary: Definitely, the film deserves attention of the audience. Guys from the street who "climb the career ladder," living by their own laws - the Code of Honor, and, at the same time, have kind heart - always capture imagination and are an example for imitation. At a minimum, deep down.
Goodfellas was a magnus opus when it released in 1990. Scorsese ventures back into familiar Italian mafia territory and everyone from Pesci and De niro to Ray Liotta are so good you stop seeing the actor and just look at them as their characters. Featuring some insane tracking shots and great visuals of the hood Goodfellas is a masterpiece in an already overflowing Martin Scorsese filmography. If you haven't already then please do watch this masterpiece of cinema.
Trying to pass Ray Liotta off as a 21 year old was a joke.
Everyone played their roles to perfection. Every scene was eventful and never bored. All the actors were perfect for their roles!
